Managers, and Payroll and Human Resources Officers
||Longevity Pay for Employees Excluded from Collective
- In accordance with Public Act No.12-1 of the December 2012 Special
Session, An Act Concerning Deficit Mitigation for the Fiscal Year Ending
June 30, 2013.
II. LONGEVITY PAYMENTS
- The April 2013 longevity payment will be the last longevity payment for
eligible state employees who are not included in any collective bargaining
unit and whose pay and longevity are not stated in statute.
- Each employee who has completed not less than ten years of state service
and who is not included in any collective bargaining unit, except employees
whose compensation is prescribed by statute, will receive a longevity
payment on April 19, 2013. This longevity payment is based on service
completed as of September 1, 2011 and is determined in accordance with the
longevity rate schedule established for the employee's class. A retired
employee who retires between October 1, 2012 and March 31, 2013 will receive
a prorated payment based on the proportion of the six-month period served
before the effective date of the employee's retirement.
- No longevity payment will be made to any employee who is not included in
any collective bargaining unit, except employees whose compensation is set
by statute, for service completed on or after April 1, 2013.
III. SALARY INCREASE
- The legislation provides for an increase in annual salary for each
non-union employee who received a longevity payment in April 2011 and does
not have his or her salary stated in statute. Effective the first pay period
after July 1, 2013, the annual salary of any state employee who is not
included in any collective bargaining unit, except employees whose
compensation is prescribed by statute, who received a longevity payment in
April 2011, will be increased by the annualized amount of the longevity
payment paid on April 19, 2013. The Department of Administrative Services
will issue updated pay plans at a later date.
IV. PAYROLL PROCEDURES
- Core-CT has run the preliminary longevity process. Each agency has a
process report and an exception report to review. Employees that could not
be processed by the program appear on the exception report. For these
employees, agencies will enter the longevity payments manually through the
Additional Payments pages using the Earnings Code LNG and the effective date
of April 1, 2013 and include the amount in both the Earnings and Goal Amount
fields. Limited scope agencies will submit their longevity payments through
their usual processing method.
- Amount: Earnings Code LNG.
